Maurice Schwartz Will Remain in New York

Maurice Schwartz, noted Yiddish actor and theatrical director who recently returned to New York from a South American tour, will remain in New York this season instead of Philadelphia, as had been previously announced. Mr. Schwartz has leased for the season the Second Avenue Theatre, which he will open two weeks hence with a production of Sholom Asch’s “The Witch of Castile”.

Other plays which Mr. Schwartz intends to present in New York during this season will be “Uncle Moses” by Asch; “The Rabbi and the Gypsies” by Sackler; “Our Children” by Francesco Sanchez, a Spanish dramatist; “The Deaf Man” by Bergelson; and “The Misanthrope” by Moliere. Stella Adler, Judith Abarbanel, Joseph Bulow, Wolf Goldfaden and Jacob Mestel are among those who will appear in Mr. Schwartz’s troupe.
